95. Free Will: What Sam Harris Gets Right and Wrong Part II




Hosted by George Ortega and Enel, this episode of Exploring the Illusion of Free Will, recorded on October 12, 2012, reviews neurologist Sam Harris's March 2012 landmark book Free Will.

The debate over whether humans have a free will languished for centuries in academia. In 2010, George Ortega decided it was time to move the issue to the public arena in a big way. Ortega spearheaded a buzz about free will that ultimately led to an explosion in mainstream media and Internet coverage, including cover stories by New Scientist and Scientific American Mind magazines. For a description and chronology of how he did it, see History of How Refuting Free Will Went From Academia to the Public Spotlight at http://exogenousagency.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/history-of-how-refuting-free-will-went-from-academia-to-the-public-spotlight/ The article includes over three dozen hyper-linked mainstream press articles on the topic between 2004 and 2012.
